16years old young woman died during the Capitol Protest in the United State of America on Wednesday. In an unconfirmed report, it was said that the lady was fatal shot dead. The protesters, believed to be supporters of out-going President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday forcing lawmakers into hiding.
The Electoral College certification vote was paused after the protesters breached the Capitol building, killing a woman as reported by AFP.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Congress would resume the counting of electoral votes inside the Capitol Wednesday night irrespective of the protester’s actions.
It is on record that since November presidential election, Trump had constantly attacked the integrity of the election results which has been shocking to most Americans as the country’s electoral proceedings have never been put in disrepute in history.
Trump had rallied his supporters outside the White House on Wednesday morning, urging them to march to the Capitol.
However, hours after the marchers had violently confronted the police and breached the building, the president released a video calling on them to “go home in peace.”
In another development, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson via Twitter condemned the disgraceful scenes in U.S. Congress.
“The United States stands for democracy around the world and it is now vital that there should be a peaceful and orderly transfer of power,” he tweeted.
